Hello and welcome to theScore's ongoing coverage of the PGA Tour. Tonight we present the final round of the first full field event of the season: The Sony Open in Hawaii.
The big story brewing right now is the play of a pair of rookies -- Scott Langley and Russell Henley -- who are playing together for the fourth straight day.
Par 3 7th - With the pin tucked far against the right edge, Henley plays his tee shot towards the middle of the green and lands it pin-high, about 40-feet away. Langley, meanwhile tried to draw his in from left-to-right, but over-did it a touch, bouncing it right of the flag and watching it bounce over the back. Third man in the group, Tim Clark does just about the same thing Henley did, but is maybe 5-feet closer.
Par 3 7th - Langley's ball was sitting down a bit in the rough and his chip is not a good one. He hits it fat and doesn't advance it onto the surface. Henley's long birdie bid runs out of speed as it nears the hole and stops about 3-4 feet short. Clark had the speed on his putt better than Henley, but it just spilled off to the right.
Par 3 7th - From just off the surface, Langley is able to use his putter. He had about 15-feet left, but he doesn't give it enough juice to get it to the cup and will settle for bogey, dropping him to -15. Henley then cleans up his par to give himself a three-shot edge.
Par 5 9th - After putting his second shot in the front bunker, Matt Kuchar is able to get up-and-down for birdie, that moves him level with the group at -14.
Par 4 8th - Henley's tee ball is yanked left, but he gets a bit of a lucky break and it doesn't find any trouble. Clark meanwhile finds the right side of the fairway and will have a nice angle to the back-left hole location. Langley starts his ball well left and then draws it back into the fairway. He, too, will have that nice angle.
Par 4 8th - Up at the green and the group ahead, Charles Howell III left his approach shot on the fringe right of the hole and elected to use the putter. His execution is spot-on, too, as he rolls it up to tap-in range.
Despite the lack of wind, not a lot of players going low today. Y.E. Yang best round going at -6. There have been 8 rounds better earlier.
Par 4 8th - Clark has 160 yards to the hole cut way at the back. Clark likes it right away asking it to "be right" and IT IS, landing just short and with some spin settling within about 8-feet. Henley is lucky to have an angle to the green with a pair of trees just a few yards in front. He chokes down and pulls it left again, hitting a member of the gallery and leaving himself in a tricky spot -- he'll be short sided with his third. Langley, following Clark's lead, hits a beauty as well, rolling it up to within about 7-feet.
Par 4 10th - After his tee shot at the short par-4 found the rough, he had a short pitch back onto the green and leaves himself a pretty flat putt for birdie in the 10-foot range. Good chance to get to -15.
Par 4 8th - Henley, like Langley on the previous hole, hit a chunky third shot that barely sneaks its way onto the green. He'll still be away with his putt for par. Good chance for a two-stroke swing for both Langley and Clark.
Russell Henley has not made a bogey for 50 holes. Until now.
Par 4 8th - Henley's par attempt just slides by on the left and he'll drop to -17.
Par 4 10th - Kuchar with the early walk on his birdie attempt, but it catches too much of the left edge and stays OUT.
Par 4 8th - Langley -- who had nearly 404-feet of made putts in the first three rounds -- can't get things going today. His putt of 5-feet, 4-inches misses on the left and he settles for a disappointing par. That's his third missed putt inside 6-feet of the day. Clark, meanwhile, cashed his birdie putt in to join Langley at -15.
Pat Perez, with a two-putt birdie, joins Langley and Clark at -15.
Par 5 9th - Clark with a perfect drive down the middle; Langley dials back with the low 3-wood; and Henley then blasts it past both of them. All three will have a chance to go at the green with their second shots.
Par 5 9th - After a wonderful second shot left him just over 15-feet for an eagle, Charles Howell III is able to cash-in and moves into solo second at -16, one off Henley's lead.
Par 5 9th - Langley was first to play and hit a low bullet that lands on the front portion of the green, before chasing all the way over the back. Good draw hole-location for Clark and he uses a hybrid but over-worked it and finds the green-side bunker near the pin. He won't have much green to work with. Henley, with only 193 yards to the flag, hits it way in the air and he was a little deep, but is on the putting surface.
Par 5 9th - Langley with nearly 60-feet to hole and he elects to go with a bump-and-run, just getting it on the surface and letting it roll towards the flag. He does it well though, as it waves to the hole when it rolls by on the left. He'll have 5-feet or so for birdie. Clark from the bunker, had a good lie but didn't hit a great shot and will have close to 20-feet for birdie.
Par 4 10th - After playing a tidy little pitch that left him a putt inside 10-feet for birdie, Perez, couldn't get it to go. Pretty disappointing par.
Par 5 9th - Henley with a tentative stroke, never giving it enough pace and leaving it about 7-feet short. Clark's birdie putt will move from right-to-left and he strokes the putt perfect, rolling it in center cut.
Par 5 9th - Henley is able to cash-in on his birdie putt, restoring his two-stroke cushion. Langley, meanwhile, makes it three birdies in the group, to keep pace.
Par 4 10th - Henley's tee ball is smashed, nearly rolling up onto the front portion of the green, where Howell III's birdie putt of about 20-feet just misses on the right.
Par 4 10th - Langley laid back off the tee and found the right rough, just skirting the mouth of a bunker. He was asking for his second shot to get down right away, but it was solid, settling about 8-feet left of the flag and pin-high. Clark was in the fairway after a good tee ball and his second from 60-yards was also solid, landing short and spinning to about 8-feet below the hole.
Par 3 11th - The tee shot from Howell III didn't carry far enough and finds the rough just off the putting surface.
Par 4 10th - After his massive tee shot, Henley had the advantage of playing a little pitch and run, hitting a good, but not great shot. He'll probably have inside 10-feet for birdie, but he will still be away.
Par 4 10th - He had the longest putt of the three, but no matter, Henley is the first in for birdie, calmly rolling his in the middle of the cup. Langley follows suit with a birdie make of his own, while Clark makes it 3/3.
Par 3 11th - Howell III's short pitch from off the green leaves him a couple of feet to save his par. A good shot, but he's now three off the pace.
Par 3 11th - In the group ahead, Howell III did tap-in for par. Clark takes a 5-iron for the hole cut 196 yards towards the back and on the right, landing it near the middle of the green, on the left side. He'll have 40-feet or so for an unlikely birdie. Langley, who works the ball left-to-right, with a green-light hole location for his shot shape, and hits a solid one, leaving it about 15-feet below the hole for a birdie. Henley then hoists his way in the air and settles pin-high, but about 50-feet left of the hole.
Par 3 11th - Henley is the first to go and his long birdie slides by on the right. Clark is next to play and is also rolls past the hole on the right. Langley, who had the best look from inside 11-feet, hit a solid putt, but it caught too much of the right edge and lipped out.
Par 4 12th - After missing the fairway on the left, Howell III's approach never gets quite on the line it needs. It finds the green, but he's on right, with the hole cut towards the front-left.
Par 4 12th - Clark almost draws it back to the fairway, but is in the rough on the right; Langley with 3-wood that starts left and draws back but chases into the first cut; and Henley, also with 3-wood, loses it well left and into the gallery.
Par 4 12th - In the group ahead, the birdie attempt of Howell III nearly went down, but came up a roll or two short.
Par 4 12th - The ball of Henley came to rest on the cart path so he chose to take relief into the rough just right of it. He had to keep it low, may have kicked off a couple limbs and ends up running it through the green on the right. Langley's approach was okay, but not great leaving him some 20-25-feet for birdie. Clark, from the primary rough, landed it left of the hole, but it released just through the green and into the rough. Still a good birdie chance though.
Par 4 12th - Henley with plenty of green to work with, but his ball had settled on the downslope and he didn't make great contact, leaving it 10-feet short. Langley's birdie attempt was a good one, but just trailed off to the left, leaving a routine par. Clark, despite being in the primary rough, is able to use his putter. He smashed it through whatever break there was and has some work left to salvage par.
Par 4 13th - After finding the fairway off the tee, Howell III with a solid approach that ends up on the fringe just right of the flag. Good birdie chance.
